Former MU men's lacrosse players are finding pro success in 2017
Liam Byrnes, B.J. Grill and Jacob Richard and current volunteer assistant Ryan Brown have been selected
“Ryan Brown’s playing career speaks for itself and as I got to know him better, I quickly realized how impactful he can become as a coach,” Marquette head coach Joe Amplo said. “He has a knowledge for shooting and the personality to mentor our players. The fact that he played at Johns Hopkins and for a staff who I have tremendous respect for is an added bonus. I look forward to learning from him and seeing the impact he can make on the Marquette Lacrosse culture.“
Brown was an offensive force during his tenure at Johns Hopkins, totaling 159 goals and 209 points throughout his four-year career. Behind his scoring output, Brown ranks second in school history in career goals and seventh in points. The Sykesville, Maryland, native, was an All-Big Ten First Team performer and was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year after the 2015 season, where the attacker notched an impressive 61 goals and 77 points. He was also a USILA Second Team All-American for the second year in a row following the conclusion of his senior year.
"I am overly excited to join the Marquette men's lacrosse staff,” Brown said. “The program has a great culture and incredible work ethic that makes it a terrific spot to coach and learn. The city of Milwaukee is also an awesome place to live and work. When I spoke with Coach Amplo about the opportunity to coach here I was excited and couldn't say no to this awesome opportunity."
Brown posted 23 goals and seven assists during his rookie campaign with the Charlotte Hounds in 2016 and helped the squad to the playoffs where they fell to the Ohio Machine in the MLL semifinals. He posted a season-best six goals on two occasions and a pair of tallies against the Machine in the playoffs.
